Louis Marie de Schryver, 1862 - 1942, Born in Paris in 1862, Louis Marie de Schryver began his artistic career under the tutelage of the portrait painter and orientalist Gabriel-Joseph-Marie-Augustin Ferrier. He exhibited for the first time at the Paris Salon at the young age of 13, showing two works, both still life canvases of flowers.
The choice of subject would permeate throughout the entirety of his long career. He earned numerous awards from 1879 onwards, including a number of honorable mentions at the Salon, as well as the Universal Expositions of 1891, 1896 and 1900. Highly praised by both critics and the public alike, de Schryver enjoyed enormous success during his lifetime, and his works remain highly sought after. More on Louis Marie de Schryver
